Guest Blog: GDA - Disabled Women & Domestic Violence

2 December 2020

On International Day of Disabled People, we are delighted to be part of the UN’s 16 days of action against gender-based violence, by taking this opportunity to highlight the strength and tenacity of disabled women, who make up over 60% of our membership, 50% of our board and who have held leading roles driving forwards human rights for all disabled people, since the organisation was founded in 2001 – and long before that as well!

16 Days of Action: Why Orange?

24 November 2020

Today, Wednesday 25th November, is International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women.  

However, today also marks the beginning of 16 Days of Action, an annual international campaign which has one simple aim – to eradicate violence against women and girls and fight for a more equal world.
